    Hi Takasaki - 

    Open a support ticket. From what I understand there is a way to limit server-to-server traffic using Advanced Network Routing in server settings - which may help here.

    Hi Tony san,

    The communication cost varies with the communication traffic volume between the client and server. Because LTE is on the server side, communication cost in LTE is not relevant unless client connection is made, but if you connect for hours and hours from client every day, communication cost will be high.

    Control of the amount of traffic to the client with the Network Routing feature will not perfect.

    Takasaki - 

    Sorry, I'm failing to understand your request, then. Do you mean you want us to somehow reduce the amount of traffic needed to view video remotely?

    We do that already with our adaptive scaling and network technologies. 

    Or did you mean you want to put a limit on how much video can actually be streamed by a Client, for example? Can you explain your ideal solution in more detail?

    Hi Tony san,

    I apologize that my explanation is not enough.

    Yes, I want to put a limit on how much video can actually be streamed by a remote Client. Below are my image....

    It would be appreciated if Media Server could set the maximum amount used for streaming to Client.

    Takasaki,

    Request is clear. We have other user story like this: 

    ..Each customers IT department has strict protocols that we must follow to ride on their network and they allot us X amount of bandwidth.  On this bandwidth we must connect to the video, connect to the audio and send alarm signals.  If all of the allotted bandwidth is being utilized by the video, alarm signals may not go through and the audio gets very choppy or unstable.

    I'm not sure when but we'll do it.
